With the Motor Vehicle Bill coming in place, the government will now have the power to regulate Uber and Ola. Many states lack the norms to regulate app-based cab services. This resulted in each state having varied guidelines.
Once the law comes into place, the government will have the power to frame the rules to regulate the cab aggregators such as surge or arbitrary pricing, passenger comfort and safety.
While a Uber spokesperson welcomed the motor vehicle bill by assuring continued support for the government’s vision, Ola is yet to respond to the queries sent in by some sections of the media.
